Hey, friends!

We are so excited about this semester at Johnson Ferry Women, and we have some incredible things planned for the next few months!

This semester, we want to focus on growing our understanding of the character of God. We want to know who God is, believe His Word, and share that truth with others. Maybe you’ve never been able to believe that God has compassion for you, or maybe you have trouble seeing God as a God of justice. Perhaps you struggle to believe that God is powerful enough to take care of you, provide for you, or intervene in your circumstances. Isaiah 40:28-29 reminds us to remember the character of God and to let the truth of who He is permeate our lives. It says,

“Do you not know? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom. He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak.”

God has graciously allowed us to know His character by revealing Himself in His Word, the Bible! But in order to know God’s character, we need to read His Word! He is everlasting, the Creator of the earth. He will not ever grow tired, and He will not give up on us. By reading His Word, we can discover more and more of the truth of who our God is and how He feels about us!

Friend, wherever you’re at, whatever you’re facing, whatever your deepest desire, you have a God who does not grow tired or weary, and He is always working for your good and His glory. He understands exactly what you’re facing and what you’re going through. He gives you strength when you are weary. And even more, He never grows tired of working on your behalf. He showers you with compassion and care over and over again. You can trust Him today!

Join us this semester as we seek to know and understand the truth of who God is and how His love transforms us. Each week, we’ll focus on a new action we can take as we grow in our understanding of God’s character.

This week, take some time to read God’s Word and learn more about His character. Start with Isaiah 40. Write down a few aspects of God’s character that you find in this passage. Pray through these attributes of God and ask Him to reveal these aspects of His character to you this week.

We’re so thankful you’re a part of our Johnson Ferry community! Let’s step into these next few months expecting God to reveal Himself and the truth of His character to us as we seek to know Him more.
